Wildfire Damage Reduced on Prescribe-Burned Areas in New Jersey
Abstract:Prescribed burning is now a standard forest-management practice in the Pine Region of southern New Jersey. Reports on prescribed burning have emphasized its value as a silviculiural tool for favoring pine over oak. Yet its value in reducing damage from wildfires--and in making wildfires easier to control--is equally important. Within the last few years there have been some striking examples of this.
